What is TRIO/Student Support Services?

The Student Support Services Program works with 225 UVM students (first year to senior) each year by providing them with academic, social, and cultural support throughout college. This is a voluntary program, but we believe it can be really helpful in making sure that students are able to stay on track while in college.

Students can submit an application to the SSS program at any time after they have been accepted to UVM. However, depending on when they apply, they will either be accepted immediately or placed on a waiting list for the next year, so the earlier an application can be sent to us, the better.

SSS serves first-generation college students (students who do not have a parent who has graduated from a four year university or college), students who have a documented disability, and students whose family income falls within U.S. Department of Education guidelines.
